Inhibitory Effect of Helicteres gardneriana Ethanol Extract on Acute Inflammation
Number of rolling and adherent leukocytes during 10 min periods after 2 h and migrated leukocytes after 4 h of inflammatory stimulus.
Groups of animals
Cg + Sal
Cg + DMSO
Cg + Dex
Cg + EEHg500
Each value represents the mean ± S.E.M. of 6–8 animals. Dexamethasone (Dex) administered orally, 0.5 mg/Kg was used as a reference anti-inflammatory (positive control). Basal = animals that received injection of saline in the scrotal pouch (Sal + Sal), Cg = carrageenan, Sal = 0.9% saline, DMSO = 16% dimethylsulfoxide, EEHg = ethanol extract of Helicteres gardneriana. a, compared to basal group. b, compared to the groups Cg + Sal and Cg + DMSO (one-way ANOVA, Tukey’s test).
